New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Wednesday criticised in the Lok Sabha for attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as Congress President Sonia Gandhi, with an expelled RJD member demanding apology from him and a CBI probe into his activities.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav said Kejriwal had "lowered the dignity" of the post of the Prime Minister as also the Congress President by his comments and actions.
"The Delhi Chief Minister questions the educational qualifications of Prime Minister and demands that opposition leader Sonia Gandhi should be sent to jail," he said without naming Kejriwal but making the reference clear.
He sought apology from the Delhi Chief Minister to the nation for this.
He made certain other remarks against Kejriwal and demanded CBI probe into his activities.
Some of his remarks against Kejriwal did not go down well with Speaker Sumitra Mahajan who asked him not to take any names.
Kejriwal's AAP has four members in the House but none of them was present when the issue was raised.
Raising another issue, a BJP member Gopal Shetty sought a debate in Parliament on the issue of "federal structure". He said that despite the Prime Minister favouring "cooperative federalism", there has not been appropriate response from the states.
Through another issue, Bhartruhari Mahtab (BJD) made a strong case for central monitoring of Ashram Schools run by the states on the central assistance.
This, he said, was necessary amid reports that as many as 882 tribal children studying in these schools have died between 2010 to 2015 with 684 deaths in Maharashta alone.
